I have just been shouted at by a senior* colleague.
Really, actually yelled at. In front of his two staff – at least one of whom is fairly regularly yelled at, I’m told.
I walked away and came back to my desk.
It made him look childish and unreasonable, and I hope I retained my dignity by refusing to stoop to shouting back… tempting though it was.
I’m more angry than upset, but should I:
a) apologise for walking out but explain that I won’t stay to be yelled at in the workplace
b) forget it
c) tell the boss – who is away on leave this week?
* senior in the sense that he is older than me and has been here longer, but he is in Sales and I’m in Creative, so I don’t report to him in any way. And I’m pretty senior myself.
